Module Summary
An interior designer must not only be able to bring a creative vision to life, but also have the capacity to coordinate projects of varying size and complexity. If you want to work in this field, you must be prepared to work with a number of other professionals, to take the client’s needs into consideration at all times and to call on a range of technical skills when required. The process can be long, difficult and frustrating at times. You will need a sound knowledge of drawing techniques and principles, in both analogue and digital formats. You must appreciate the importance of clear communication and understand how best to explain the “story” of a space to clients and contractors. There are numerous considerations that must be addressed before any construction or decorative work is to be undertaken, such as agreeing on a fee and how any relevant legislation will be handled. Drawing up project schedules and budgets may not be the most exciting activities undertaken by interior designers, but they are fundamental in ensuring a satisfactory outcome. It is always wise to assume that at least one or two setbacks will present themselves over the course of the project and that you will need to rely on your initiative and experience in overcoming them.
